NY ABLE: Financial Empowerment and ABLE Accounts

 Please join us on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. ET, to learn more about:

  • What are ABLE accounts
  • Eligibility criteria to open an ABLE account
  • How much a person with a disability can save in an ABLE account
  • The impact of having an ABLE account on SSI, SSDI and Medicaid
  • Who can contribute to an ABLE account
  • The NY ABLE program
An ABLE account enables qualified individuals with disabilities to save money in a tax-advantaged account that may be used for qualified disability expenses. This allows the account holder to save money while keeping their eligibility for federal public benefits.

Please note: Real-time captioning will be provided for this webinar series. For other accommodation requests, questions about the webinar or the registration process, please contact Shajira Brown at sbrown@ndi-inc.org.
